Melissa Trifiletti

Melissa is an Ohio native who loves the small things Colorado State offers. “While taking a walk around campus, I discovered an incredible research garden.  Our faculty and students designed this incredible oasis in the middle of our campus where they conduct research on plants.”

Initially unsure about even attending college, Melissa not only found a place she loved, but also a career.

“I didn’t know very many people who had gone to college.  It was a hard decision that had many unknowns as to what the future would look like.  After 4 years, I didn’t want to leave college,” explained Melissa. “The best part of being the Director of Admissions is finding and improving ways to help connect you to your exciting future.”
